    Since i updated to the new facebook i havent been getting notifications but besides that everything runs perfectly. For example i would not get a notification if a friend messages me. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    Turn on notifications? There are settings in FaceBook, in the app, in the settings/notification center... make sure they're all set to annoy alert you when something happens.

    Would haveing facebook messenger installed affect the notifications?

    LOL! exactly. i have mine set to Sound > OFF , View in Lockscreen > OFF , Badges > ON , Notification Center > ON

    IF you are still jailbroken then there's no telling. maybe try deleting the app and reinstalling

    Delete cookies on your computer before enter facebook. I don't know if it works, just have a try.

    Hey Thatguy
    If your device is not proving you notification alerts from Facebook, check your app settings.
    Launch the app, go to settings then notification center and check alerts are ON instead of annoy.
    If this works then it is well and good else try uninstalling your app from your device and then re-install it. Hope this will provide you the solution for your issue.

    I dont think having messenger installed but try deleting it and see if that helps you. I myself dont get alot of messages because the people i have on fb call or text me. But this app is much quicker than before.

    my suggestion would be the following:

    Restore as New iPhone

    Download the Facebook app and test to make sure you are getting notifications (which you should)

    then load your latest back up onto the device - this part is questionable since it may be a back up that contains jailbroken data and more than likely corrupted data. if that is the case then you might be better off just starting over with a Restored as New setup

    I back up with icloud would that make a difference

    it is a possibility. i still say Restore as New iPhone when given the option towards the end of a restore in iTunes

    Restoring as New has always corrected issues i have ran into

    Assuming you are just talking about Facebook notifications (and not SMS, email, other push notifications, etc) my guess would be that the new app sucks just as much as ALL of Facebook's apps have at notifications. I don't think it has ever really been reliableI still get many notifications that I never see until I launch the app.

    This sometimes happens to me when I'm connected via 3G/EDGE; however, if leave the app open in the background, I get notifications and badges.
    I've never had problems when I'm connected over Wi-Fi, though.

    Facebook messenger is a different app, yes they are for the same website services but served differently. I am having both apps over my iPhone 4S and these apps sends notifications as different apps. The restore may help your out, some times issues causes in the app while installing, give it a try.
